Our old Volvo
runs sweetly but has an annoying stall that has me beat. The stall occurs when I throttle down from somewhere over 1200 rpm
. If I throttle down at snails pace the stall is avoided but if I take the power off in a normal action, the revs drop and can't be recovered. I'm sure it's a fuel
issue. I tried bypassing the fuel pump
using a gravity feed but it made no difference. Could this be an injector problem?
I've bled the fuel
lines and replaced some old piping then checked vacuum in the line.
There was water
in the diesel
and we drained that, but this problem has been with us for some time.
restarts no problem after stalling... Any ideas?
